This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing tliis resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner

not where)^ gave much trouble by join, others in petit for enlargem.

darat in Hutoh. Coll. 211, one of the most curious papers in that in- 
valna. collect We might presume, on his iU-success in Mass., that he 
went home, but Farmer says he was of Dover 1654. Winth. II. 262,

of A. was brot hy bis f. 1636, it is said, in the same ship with Nathaniel 
Rogers, wh. was half a jr. on her passage from London to Boston ; by 
w. Eliz. m. bef. he went to A. wh. d. 9 June 1676, were all his ch. probk

1711. He d. 17 Feb. 1697, »t 82. He was in danger from the cruel 
infatua. of 1692, when others of high rank fled from the suspicion of 
witchcraft, and of his humbler neigbb. sheep of his fold, innocent of the

wich, and came back to R. His wid. had third h. John Parmenter of 
Sudbury, and d. 15 Mar. 1683. JoBir, Ipswich, s. of the preced. b. in 
Eng. at Colchester 1613, perhaps came to Roxbury 1636, with his f. 
freem. 2 June 1641, unless that name in the rec. of the CoL apply to his

Warner ; and a d. Rebecca m. James Hovey, wh. perhaps was. the man 
k. by the Ind. at Brookfield, 2 Aug. 1675. The deficiency of Ipswich 
rec leaves all else unkn. but he was ancest of Hon. Nathan, H. C. 1778, 
LL. D. of Beverly, disting. in jurisprud. and of Hon. Joseph, H. C. 1799,

as to the coming of this famous divine. On p. Ixxxv. he says : "• When

refuge in Holland ; but more exact expression should be, in my judgm. 
thus: "As the times grew not favorable for the Puritans, he ret no

his press purports to come from his s. wh. yras very young, and the yr. 
foil. Greene bee. ruler in the office. Yet he was enterprising, hav. for 
his great service, unluckily, been reward, by grant of 300 acres in 1641,

a single man ; soon after m. had Eliz. bapt. 26 Sept. 1641, at 8 days 
old; and Wentworth, 13 Aug. 1643, at 6 days. He was a surgeon at 
Cambridge, and is honor, by Rev. Mr. Hale in his tract on Witchcraft, 
as saving in 1652, a woman charg. with the horrid offence. Perhaps he 
went home, for one of this unusual name was, in 1658, fin. and imprison, 
as one of the fiflh monarchy men, setting up the imaginary reign of King 
Jesus to disturb the absolute throne of Oliver Cromwell in his last yr. 
In Sept. 1661, liv. in London, he had a legacy in the will of Edward 
Shrimpton. William, Boston 1669, a mariner. Of descend, of first

the same man, for in such cases it is sometimes thot. that more value 
attaches to the number than to the argum. and undue artifice is employ, 
to swell the list. Margaret, aged 18, was one of the serv. of Percival

Dixwell, James, New Haven, a propr. 1685, unless the rec be 
wrong, as by confus. with the assum. surname, I suspect John, Dor- 
chester 1640, gave his sh. with others, in Thompson's Isld. 7 Feb. 1642,

impartiality, especially when we reflect how he must have kn. the 
envenom, hatred of his relat. the Mathers. Something darker is the

of heart, the Christian Commonwealth, compos, like William Aspinwall's 
Fifth Monarchy, under a strong persuasion of the " rising kingdom of 
Jesus Christ," being near at hand, may be seen in 3 Mass. Hist ColL 
IX. 130. In the humble apology, extort in May 1661, he says, it was

reign of Oliver Cromwell was then in concoction, the work was kept 
back for the preposterous, but* natural, anarchy after his death, and then 
came forth to enjoy short popular, or prob. none at all. Our peop. 
gladly acknowl. the gov. of £ng. in King, Lords, and Commons, for the 
millennium seem, premature ; yet it was hardly an object of trite poHcj

Enpicott, Gilbert, Reading, said to have been b. 1658, at Dor^

perhaps from Dorchester, Eng. by some thot. his place of b. a. 1589, 
came in the Abigail, from Weymouth, a small port on the channel, a. 9 
ms. from D. with w. and a oomp. of prob. 20 or 30 others, indud. women 
and ch. to Salem, Sept 1628. He was one of the six orig. purch. of 
the Mass. Bay from the Plymouth Gounc. 19 Mar. preced. and the 
only one wh. came over for more than two yrs. In the Royal Chart, 
of 4 Mar. folL he is nam. an Assist one of the eighteen, after Salton- 
stall, Johnson, Humphrey, and others, bef. Nowell, Vassall, Pynchon, 
and others, and by his assoc at London, in Gen. Court on 30 Apr. after 
his coming, made the head, superint. or gov. of the first sett at Salem, 
call, by them London's planta. includ. those wh. preced. or accomp. him, 
by delegat of authority (tho. it was never consummat by needful 
qnalificat.) to him and twelve counsel, to be chos. partly by the comp. in 
London, partly by these deput. and two by the older planters here, for 
all necessary rule of the country, while the chief govemm. contin. in 
the gov. dep. gov. and eighteen assist req. by the Chart chos. by the 
General Court in Eng. on the last Wednesday of Easter term. Under 
this power of attorney, or delegat of authority, these persons were em- 
power, and indeed requir. to choose a seer, and admin, to him and all 
other officers an oath at the time of his and their elect '^ wh. said oaths 
are to be admin, in a pubL ct and not elsewhere." Nothing of the sort 
was ever done, no such ct ever held by him ; nor was any seer, ever 
chos. at Salem, nor dept nor couns. ever induct, there bef. 1630, any 
more than an archbp. an admiral, or field marshal. By the instr. to 
him from his constit the gov. and comp. in London, he, with seven 
couns. was authoriz. to do certain things ; but two of those seven, John 
and Samuel Brown, he had sent home, bef. these instr. reach, him. He 
was, therefore, disabled, by his own act, from fill, up the Council, choos. 
dep. gov. or seer, and other officers. Of course he was, in the lang. of 
the law, REMITTED to his authority under the patent from Plymouth 
Comp. to Sir Henry Roswell and the other five. This was, I think, all the 
power he ever used, and certain, it was all he need. Yet Cotton Mather 
in Magn. L 18, styles him dep. gov. in Aug. 1629 ; and a respect 
descend, has even gone to the length of mak. the title '* First Gov. of 
the CoL of Mass. Bay." To me this seems, in both authors, wrong. On 
p. 57 of the Hist, of Boston, wh. aSbrds copious proof of sedulous

industrj, the auth. sajs, '' Matthew Cradock was the fir^i Gov. of the 
Mass. Comp." jet, facing the same page, be inserts the picture of John 
Endioott with a title at the bottom, "first Gov. of Mass.'' and 16 pages 
onward he inserts the picture of John Winth. with the title, giv. by the 
author, " sec. Gov. of Mass." Prob. no reader will be deceiv. for every 
one will ask, wh. was the second, third, fourth, &c. gov. of the Mass. 
Comp. wh. bee the Col. of Mass. Bay only by transfer of* all the au- 
thority, &C. in 1629, when Cradock was "first" gov. On his resignat. 
within six mos. of his elect, that yr. Winth. was chos. the same day, 
and Cradock an Assist But Cradock never came to our country, and 
so if W. be the sec. Gov. of Mass. because C. was the first ; of course 
W. would be justly reckon, the first in Mass. The order of success, of 
the Chart. Governors is this : first, Cradock, nam. in that instrum. 4 
Mar. 1629, and rechos. in May; sec Winth. chos. and sw. 29 Oct. 
1629, on Cradock's resignat. and in 1631, 2, and 3 ; third, Dudley, May 
1634; fourth, Haynes, May 1635; fifth. Vane, 1636; next yr. Wintli. 
again, and two foil. yrs. ; and Dudley, again, in 1640 ; sixth, Bel- 
liDgham, 1641; next yr. Winth. again, and rechos. the yr. foil.; sev- 
enth, Endicott, 1644; next yr. Dudley, again ; and the foil. Winth. again, 
three yrs. till his d. Honor eno. there is for Endicott, the earliest patentee 
wh. came over under the indenture from the Plymouth Company, without 
challeng. for him any that does not belong to him. . He was the first, 
and onfy, Gov. of London's Planta. and if he ever was qualif. by tak. 
the oaths under that delegat from the Gov. and Comp. of Mass. (wh. is 
unlikely, or at least cannot be prov.) he never had a successor in that 
office, wh. was merg. in the superior title on arr. of Winth. a few mos. 
after. With scrupuL precision. Increase Mather calls Winth. "the 
First Gov. that New Eng. saw at the head of the Mass. Col." On 
13 May 1629 (the Charter day of the Gen. Court for elections), Endi- 
cott was not chos. an Assist, or other officer of Mass. Bay, being absent ; 
still, however, he contin. head of the Planta. as much as he had been a 
fortnight, and, indeed, on his arr. eight mos. bef. no other patentee being 
on this side of the ocean ; but on 20 Oct. next, at the election in Lon- 
don (after transfer of the whole authority of the patent to those wh. would 
come to N. E.), when Winth. was chos. gov. and Humphrey dep. 
gov. immediat. on resignat. of Cradock and Goffis, he was again rais. to 
be one of the eighteen assist, being the first time he was ever chos. 
under the Chart. In this office, to the duty of wh. he took the o. to 
qoalif. him (as he could not earlier), 7 Sept. 1630, he cont. 9 yrs. by 
success, elect, exc. in 1635, when for his indiscreet zeal against the cross 
in the ensign, he was left out; but in 1636 he was made head of the 
first exped. against the Pequots ; in 1641, for the first time, dep. gov.

above twenty yrs.) 15 Mar. 1665, senr. a longer period than any other 
of the govs, under the old Chart, and by Shirley alone exceed, since. 
Capt. Johnson in his " Wonderworking Providences of Zion's Saviour 
in N. E." honors him in cap. IX. of his first book with appropriate 
rhymes, as John Endicott, " twice Governor of the Eng." so^ I sup- 
pose, must refer to the elections of 1644, during Winth. life, and im- 
mediat afler his d. in 1649, the date of his writing. Scottow, too, in his 
^' Narrative of the Planting" of our Col. p. 12, or as it may be read in 
the reprint in 4 Mass. Hist Coll. IV. must be understood to intend the 
prior title of Winth. when the ^ choice of a govemour and deputy to 
ABIDE THERE " is told in that valua. paragraph on pp. 289-90. 

I think Mr. Felt, in Ann. of Salem, 1. 106, first, after a difier. general 
opin. for two hundred yrs. in 1845 suggest the right of E. in "prece- 
dency to Mr. Winth.;" and he explains his view of "an error in 
rank" by the note, on same page, that Roger Conant ^^may be trufy said 
to have preceded both Messrs. Endicott and Winth. in buch office 
FOR A PART OF THIS coMifONWEALTH." In Gcncal. Beg. XIL 133-7, 
he elaborate, discuss, the quest " what office did J. E. sustain, afler arr. 
6 Sept 1628, to his elect, by the [gov. and] comp. 80 Apr. 1629." But 
I am satisfied that his decision against the opin. of Gov. Hutch, will not 
be sustain, nor does it seem to me, that Endicott is entit to any more 
office than the Plymouth comp. gave by their deed indent He was sole 
propr. in Mass. and act with the absolute power of the other patentees in 
Eng. and Mr. Felt rather lessens than enlarges his right by reference to 
the votes of our gov. and comp. in London. As their grant of office 30 
Apr. 1629 never took effect, it must be regard, as if never passed. Dr. 
Young, in n. on p. 196 of Chron. of Mass. falls into similar error (of find, 
justificat of E. in displac the Browns in this instr.), when E. had acted in 
thus shipping off the Browns before this instr. came to his hand. Endn 
cott was of stem energy, but great prudence in secular affairs, disappr. the 
conduct of his friends in Eng. for putting to death their king, with sn^ 
strange mockery of solemnity, and issued warrant for apprehens. of Whal- 
ley and Goffe, the regicides, here. Much of the sad occurrences of cruel 
scourg. of the Bapt 1651 and hang, of the Quak. 1659, that fell within his 
admin, must be charg. to Wilson or Norton, the spirit advisers of the day ; 
and tho. Leverett, or Bradstreet would have, perhaps, successf. resist 
such inflict of counsel, we kn. the cruel bigotry of Dudley or Belling- 
ham would have gone against tolerat as far and as fiercely as Endicott

whether either of his brs. were ever resid. in N. E. Of John, certainly, 
the doubt is strong, for Sargent, in his delightful " Dealings with the

sett, as rector at Shalford in Essex. In a* sermon bef. Parliam. and the 
Westminster Assembly, he said, that in our country, in seven yrs. " I 
never heard one profane oath, and all that time never did see a man 
drunk," wh. is better proof of his keeping good comp. than of searching 
for opportunity. Punishm. were frequent enough for such ofiences ; bat 
his presence was, no doubt, protection of both eyes and ears. He was 
ejected, as Calaray shows, in 1662, and d. at Ridgewell, Apr. 1697.

Yet, on turning to Scobell's Acts of that Parliamant, we find the fam.

the deriv. of the fam. fell into the error of making John, the first coiner, 
freem. of Mass. 1631. Of this name there was no freem. in Mass. and 
the nearest approach to it is that of Giles Firmin 1 634, or of his s. Giles

widof Charles Chad wick, wh. 22 Feb. 1685, left him again a widower, 
and he d. 25 Apr. 1693, aged 85. Prob. he had no eh. cxc. Jabez, b. 
1647, H. C. 1665, to bear up the uncert. tradit. honor, asenbed to him, 
of descent from the auth. of the Book of Martyrs. For these two 
Thomases, I have varied from Farmer in the dates, respectively, of 
freem.*s oath. Th'e reason may be very slight but the Concord man 
seems to have been the elder of the two ; and tho. of the four names of 
freem., above and below those of these two Foxes, three are of Concord, 
yet two of them heard of not indeed bef. 1639, while Hay ward, of those 
adra. early in 1638, was of Concord 1635, and, of course, Ilutchins of 
Cambridge might seem to balance him ; still the preponderance is for 
Concord. Certainly the Smeedly two were here some yrs. bef. being 
adm. freem. Bond boldly conject. p. 765, that he was the same as 
Thomas of Concord, in wh. I dare not follow his lead. He thereby 
makes the wid. of Percival Greene to be third w. and the wid. of Chad- 
wick fourth w. of Thomas Fox. Seven of this name had, in 1834, been 
gr. at Harv. and equal number at Yale, Brown, and Dart. coll.

not likely.

of Edward, but of Edmund, Alice, 17 ; Edmund, 15 ; Eliz. 12 ; and 
John, 8. Who Mary and the four others were, that took their passage 
OD the earlier day, is all unkn. as well as the Edward with w. Eliz. 
Conjecture will find no benefit from rec. it is thought ; for we are not 
able to determine whether he brought a w. yet kn. that he had one at 
Sandwich, but not her name. Presume we may (from his will of 21 
Jane 1682, pro. 2 Nov. foil, naming s. Edmund, John, and Edward 
Perry, as the w. of Edward Perry was Mary), that he had m. on this 
ade of the water, a wid. Perry, tho. Mr. Winsor took a diverse view, as 
if E. P. had m. a d. of Freeman. No d. is ever ment. in this country, 
cxc the two' found in the old rec. of the London custom ho. Alice, wh. 
m. 24 Nov. 1639, deac. William Paddy, and d. at Plymouth, 24 Apr.

Sandwich, 14 Feb. 1676, may have been the fellow passeng. call, in the 
rec w. of Edward, but while we are ignor. wh. Edward was, or where 
he liv. or if indeed the name be not a delusion on the rec there may be 
poesibil. of her being the w. of Edmund. Dr. Palfrey found gr.stones 
of many of this fam. name at Benefield in Northamptonsh. but the late 
Hev. Dr. James Freeman understood from fam. tradit that he was 
deriv. from Devonsh. On the first arr. of Edmund with his assoc. at 
Sandwich, they calL the place Saugus,'out of regard to the Ind. name of 
the place in Mass. whence they rem. He was an Assist, of the Col. 
1640-46 incl. but why in foil. yrs. omit, is not guessed at, nor why among 
instances of longev. he is not cited, when many younger are. * ISd-

Lewis, sett at Lynn. But I believe we kn. no more, than that the name

others, the cattle of the Gortonists, taken near Providence, under the 
absurd pretence of being spoil of war. No doubt he was of the true, or 
popular faith, or he would not thus have been trusted ; and this may, 
perhaps, render it less prob. that he was the same Edward subject in 
1689 to cens. by the Gen. Ct. for distemper, with wine. Edward, 
Lynn, freem. 1691, was, perhaps, s. of Robert of the same. Giles,

12 July 1681, Joseph Richardson. Richard, Taunton 1652, m. a d. 
of John Turner, had Richard, John, and Robert Richard, TanntoD, 
s. of the preced. m. 1 Jan. 1680, Mary, d. of John Richmond, had Bicb- 
ard, John, and Joseph. Equally strange and lamentab. is it, that a 
name which has so long predomin. at Taunton, should have so little 
genealog. precision in its details. In his ^^ Ministry of T." Emery, a 
very dilig. inquir. I. 234, gives no dates of b. m. or d. Wiluax, 
Watertown, freem. 13 May 1640, by w. Margaret had Isaac, b. 15 Agit*

Mar. 1671. His will, made that yr. names w. Margaret, s. Isaac, a.-in-

Sarah and Deborah; and, I believe, his wid. m. 14 Sept 1671, John 
Sanborn. Deborah m. 5 Dec. 1667, John Taylor; and Sarah m. 18 
Aug. 1670, John Clifford. He had, perhaps, m. in Eng. the wid. 
Webster.

Gob, George, Dover, found by Mr. Quint to have been tax. there 
seren or eight yrs. fr. 1669. Henry, Peter, and Ralph, fishermen, 
of wh. the first and last are said to have been sent to Piscataqua by 
Kason in 1631, may, I think, be more likely to spell their own names 
Qee ; and Peter to be gr.f. of the famous min. of Boston. 

GoFFE, Anthony, Wobum, by w. Sarah had Joseph, b. 1 Nov. 
1687, d. soon ; and James, 3 June 1689, d. next day. Perhaps he rem.

Siepard, who left this sh. and some mos. later took another pass, from

tmkn. A long prevalent mistake of Grosse of Watertown, freem. of

former yr. sent to us by the governm. at home, had, as in his let. of 28 
Joly 1651, from Boston, to the Lord Gen. Cromwell, our John Cotton 
assures him, " not been sold for slaves to perpet. servitude, but for 6, or 
7, or 8 yrs. as we do our own." For the precise import of these last 
words, that may seem intentional, ambiguous, moderate sagacity will 
luggedt different conject. yet far more interest belongs to the number ; 
and the. it is easy enough -to guess, it is difficult to ascertain, the exact 
enumeration. But some in the shipm. of the former yr. must have been 
Grants. Neither of these slave cargoes prob. could add much to our 
wholesome population. The Comtee. of the Privy Council, a quarter 
cf a century aAer, sent over to Gov. Bradstreet a series of twenty-seven 
qaestions relat, to the condition of this Col. in every particular, to wh. in 
1680 he gave answers, the latter part of 17th hav. these words: " Now 
and then, two or three negroes are brot. hither fix>m Barbados and other 
of his Majesty's plantations, and sold here for about twenty pounds 
apbee; so ^hat there may be, within our governm. a. 100 or 120, 
>od it may be as many Scots brot. hither and sold for servants in the 
&ne of the war with Scotland, and most now married and liv. here, and 
about half so many Irish, brot hither at sev. times as servants." Tlie 
^crotDning mercy," as Oliver, with foresight at least equal to his piety, 
entitled the result of each of those terrible days, showed its profit more 
ID England than among the Cols, in the West Ind. or N. A. Most of 
the unhappy exiles d. of disease, we may believe, whether titled scurvy 
or broken heart ; and some of the sad remainder, no doubt, after close 
of the yrs. for wh. they had been sold, abandoned the land of their 
lorrows. Twenty-eight and nine yrs. only had elapsed when Bradstreet 
gave this loose report, and by his reckoning, inexact as it is, we see 
reason for inference, that four fiflhs of the young prisoners, brot. here in 
1651 and 2, were not remaining. From his laxity of phrase " most 
now married and liv. here," I should feel compel, to make large deduc- 
tion. See 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. VIII. 337. So tliat after yrs. of con- 
sideration giv. to this subject, and dilig. inquiry for the stocks whence

sprang the N. E. popul. of 1775, and duly estimatiog the ratio of in- 
crease from that glorious colonj of " Scotch Irish/* sixty-five yrs* later, 
whose male adults were only one third of these offscouring of the civil 
war, I presume that not more than one in twenty or thirty of these 
involunt. youthful " redemptioncrs " was m. on our shores. Here is one 
of the necessary sequences of such social convulsion. The names of 
most of these sad settlers frofn one ship may be seen in Genealog. Beg*

Scrupulous inquiry will, prob* lead to belief, that an error of near. 40 yrs. 

18 here seen, and that the suffer, was one of the very first victims of 

Philip's war. William, Watertown, perhaps as early as 1632, freem. 25 

May 1636, had good est d. 8 Oct 1662, aged, says the rec a. 94. But 

the Beg. in Eng. of his bapt 30 Oct. 1575, when he could be very few 

days old, for his f. Thomas m. Rose Trippe on 14 May 1573, and the first 

eh. Eliz. was bapt 1 Apr. 1574, proves that he was a. 87. He m. 9 June

House of Cambridge, and her four ch. d. Barnes, and d. Sarah Smith

1669, or one acco. has it, 14 Sept 1670, in 90th yr. Six or seven yrs. 

of exagger. may here be allowed for, knowing that the age of her h. 

was equally extend, beyond the truth. William, Lynn, is by Lewis 

named of 1636, and d. next yr. William, Wells 1656, or earlier, a 

man of conseq. gr. juror, next yr. elk. of the writs, and commissr. for 

small causes until 1679 ; had Jonathan, and Joseph, perhaps other ch. 

but those outliv. him. He d. 1702, as his gr.s. Joseph wrote, in a letter 

of 24 Mar. 1733, says, also, that he told him he was b. 1597. See 

Geneal. Reg. IX. 312. . The writer's f. Joseph, was b. 1647, being the 

younger, and hims. was b. 1677, so that he could hardly mistake the yr.

of the old man's d. when he calls him 105 yrs. old. Whether equal 
oonfid. should be yielded to the date of his b. depends on the ages 
of the relater and the hearer. If the one were too young to note such 
matters with precision, or the other too aged to possess exact reooUect 
some deduct, perhaps of ten yrs. may be justif. However the prob. is 
far greater of the extreme age, than the story ^v. by Col. Whipple in 
GeneaL Reg.- V. 246, embarrass, with double absurdity, making the 
venerable Hammond to be of Monmouth's party, 1685, when he was 88 
yrs. old, if the gr.8. report be correct, and he had been 30 yrs. at onr

party in opposition to the Duke of Monmouth, whereas Frost was in his 
grave at Kittery twenty-two yrs. bef. the illegit. slip rebeL against hu 
precious uncle. Such is the jack-a-lantem made of chronology preserv. 
by venerat. traditions. William, who was k. by the Ind. 27 Jane 
1675, the fourth day of Philip's war, may have been of Reboboth, for 
there one William had Eliz. b. 24 Sept. 1661 ; but this man was of the

of volunt. of Cambridge and the neighb. town of Dedham.

Harbert 

Harcher, William, Lynn 1636, rem. a. 1640, to Southampton, L. I.

Mercy, Dorothy, Sarah, and Benjamin ; but their names are obt thro, a 
will of Robert Potter's sec. w. so that the order of succession may not 
be obs. He is thot to have been s. of a sis. of Francis Weston, at least 
he succeed, to the est of W. wh. left no issue. Of four of the ds. we 
kn. the m. Isabel to Thomas Wicks ; Eliz. to Thomas Young ; Mary to 
Edward Ketchum ; and Meribah to George Townsend. Perhaps the
